2016 BEAST DOME MLB ALL-STAR TEAM
BEAST DOME NATION.
This is it. This is probably my last Fantasy Baseball article of the 2016 season for quite some time. With that being said, you can still sign me as your unofficial co-GM to take home your Fantasy Baseball Championship, or win some games in Vegas or DFS. Check out the new and improved..
MUNTRADAMUS FANTASY BASEBALL PACKAGE
I will throw in some random videos from time to time for Fantasy Baseball, but from here on out. It is all about Fantasy Football. With that being said, I introduce you to.
THE 2016 BEAST DOME MLB ALL-STAR TEAM
WILSON RAMOS – WAS
2016 YTD: .333. 13 HR/48 RBI (#1 Catcher according to CBS)
Every year every expert complains about Ramos and his health. When he is healthy, Ramos is a BEAST that is bigger than just about every catcher in the league. He is swinging a hot stick in the heart of the Nationals order and 100+ RBI season is guaranteed to come.
MARK TRUMBO – BAL
Pace.280+BA/50+ HR/120+ RBI
2016 YTD: .287. 28 HR/68 RBI (Leads the Majors in HR)
Trumbo has been nothing short of a BEAST. Called it way before anyone saw it coming in this article (Feb/12).
BRETT LAWRIE – CWS
2016 YTD: .256. 11 HR/7 SB (Only 2 Other 2B on Pace )
Lawrie is on pace to have a season that could surpass 20 HR/15 SB. Remember when Lawrie was being over drafted in all Fantasy Leagues a few years ago? Now he is the steal of all steals. Lawrie was a featured player I wrote about to the public on BEAST DOME.
EVAN LONGORIA – TB
2016 YTD: .290. 19 HR/48 RBI (33 HR Career High)
Everyone thought Longoria was done and over the hill. Longoria is a super star hitter, he has starred in commercials and has been the face of the Tampa Bay Rays like Kevin Durant was the face for the OKC Thunder. Longoria could approach 40 Home Runs before the season is over.
JEAN SEGURA – ARI
2016 YTD: .316. 6 HR/15 SB (Qualifies at 2B/SS)
Was a popular article in 2015. The move to Arizona has blew up the career of Jean Segura who has no pressure but to be himself on a re-building Arizona squad. Segura is having a career year and the addition of 2B to his eligibility has made him almost priceless.
Odubel Herrera – PHI
2016 YTD: .295. 10 HR/48 Runs/12 SB (Future BD H.O.F )
Odubel is similar to Future BD H.O.F member Gregory Polanco who I had ranked in the top of his breakout 2015 year. Herrera is a machine of a BEAST and he will only get better as he is still 24 years old.
Cameron Maybin – DET
2016 YTD: .343. 37 Runs/10 SB (Only Played 49 Games )
When Cameron Maybin was a couple Weeks away from activation, I did not post a single article on BEAST DOME until he was healthy. He ended up stealing a base in his first 4 games back off the DL. Maybin is batting 2nd in one of the most potent offenses in the MLB, and those runs/SB will add up very quickly in the 2nd half.
Carlos Beltran – NYY
2016 YTD: .293. 19 HR/54 RBI (39 Years Old)
Everyone has given up faith on the aging Beltran, but I still saw him worth the late round flier. The Softball field aka Yankee Stadium was built for someone like Beltran who can hit line drives straight to the Jet Stream in Right. Health could be an issue and he is a great sell-high, but for now enjoy the ride.
VICTOR MARTINEZ – DET
2016 YTD: .309. 17 HR/59 RBI (37 Years Old)
Victor Martinez is one of the top hitting catchers on FanDuel all season. While he no longer catches, V-Mart is putting up vintage numbers out of the cleanup spot for Detroit. He usually has RBI opportunities almost every game. Expect a big 2nd half as the Tigers make a Playoff Push.
STARLIN CASTRO – NYY
2016 YTD: .253. 10 HR(14 HR Career High)
Starlin is having his own Superstarlin season. Castro has never hit more than 14 HR in a season, going into the All-Star Break he has already reached double digits and it would be no surprise to see a power surge take him to 25 Bombs to close the season. Qualifying at 2B/SS is vital. While his first half is a bit disappointing, do not be surprised to see the young star take his game up a notch now that he is more comfortable as a Yankee.
Matt Holliday – STL
2016 YTD: .241. 15 HR/52 RBI (Last 30+ HR Season. 2007)
Holliday was injured last season and missed nearly the entire 2nd half of the season. Everyone was afraid his power would never be the same, but he is still the middle of the order RBI Machine that should never be over looked. Some players will always be superstars, Matt Holliday is one of those players.
Pace. 20 Wins. 200+ Ks. ERA >3
2016 YTD: 9 Wins. 105 K. 2.67 ERA
While Lester has been falling apart right before the All-Star Break, Lester was easily the #2 most dominant pitcher behind Kershaw for much of the 1st Half of the season. The ASB is coming at a perfect time for Lester to find his groove, the Cubs are making a push towards the #1 Seed in the NL.
Pace. 20 Wins. >200 K.
2016 YTD: 9 Wins. 91 K. 3.91 ERA
While the ERA is not sparking, the Wins and Strikeouts are everything you want from your Starting Pitcher. Samardizja aka the Shark is finding his Superstar value in SF and you can expect a lot of wins in the 2nd half of the year as the Giants get healthier after the All-Star Break.
Pace. 10+ Wins. 200+ K.
2016 YTD: 3 Wins. 107 K. 2.96 ERA
The win total has been horrendus for Teheran who cannot find run support on the worst team in Baseball. The Braves might sell Teheran at the Trade Deadline to a contender. When that happens Julio should be winning games left and right, his ERA was below 2.50 to start July.
Pace. 40+ Saves
2016 YTD: 24 Saves. 2.98 ERA
The Nickname is back and in full-roce for Francisco Rodriguez. While his K’s are nothing to brag home about, K-Rod is cleaning up as the Tigers closer, something Joe Nathan could not do at all. With the Tigers getting healthier after the ASB, K-Rod should be seeing more save opportunities.
